I want this to be a stricly opinion. like in your opinion, the top ten snowiest places on the east coast, relative to their climate, area, geogrpahy, etc. Not a list of who gets the most snow. So I'll start

10) Mountains of Northern Gergia. When you think of Gergia you don't think of snow, but they get quite a bit.

9) Eastern Massachusets. You'd think the ocean would play a role in preventing snow. No.

8) Great Smoky Mountains - More snow than most areas of the interior Northeast. Just need a stiff NW breeze and some elevation to crank out 50" + a year.

7) Blue Ridge Mountains, - Virginia - Often recieve more than the annual snow maps indicate. Micro Climate because of upslope enhancement when the storms ride up the eastern US.

6) Central Pennsylvania, - prime position for Nor'easters, lake effect, clippers, you name it , they got it. One of the snowiest places in America given there climate and not to high elevation.

5) Northern Maine - Need I say more

4) Boone, NC - gets upslope heavily in the winter, and still gets its good old southern snow. Often gets 50" +, plus is one of the nicest college towns in America.

3) Snowshoe , Cass Valley, WV - Every other day. It seems to snow.

Yep.

Yep. I've seen it snow for days and days on end up there with 290-310 wind.
I'd spread it out a bit more and run it from western Greenbier county through Pocahontas, Webster and Randolph counties.

Jay Peak, VT. They get crushed every year it seems.

When I saw this thread I knew the answer was "Jay Peak". Even though this is an opinion thread I am pretty sure Jay gets the most. They routinely get 400 inches plus. I think they were something like 550 inches a few years ago. place is nuts. check out there daily pictures in the winter.
